Steph Curry is widely regarded as one of the best players in the game right now and is considered being a fan favourite for hundreds of thousands of fans across the world.

One of Shaq’s biggest fans is former NBA player Shaquille O’Neal, who has swore of his love for Curry multiple times by saying that Curry is his favourite player right now.

Shaq swore of his love for Curry once again recently when he opened up about why he loves the Golden State Warriors superstar, as he said that Curry is in his category and nobody comes close to him.

Speaking in an interview with Uproxx, Shaq spoke about his brand promotions, the Los Angeles Lakers, the Brooklyn Nets but his well-known love for Steph Curry.

Shaq is well known for taking every opportunity to shower the highest praise upon the four-time NBA champion whenever he can, and he took his opportunity once again to profess his love for Curry.

What did Shaq have to say about Curry this time?

The NBA Hall of Famer spoke on what makes Curry special and why he is ‘jealous’ of him.

Shaquille O'Neal Steph Curry

When asked about what he thinks makes Steph Curry so special, Shaq said: “Because there’s no one like him. People remember Shaq, there was no one like him. He’s one of those players — Mike, Kobe, LeBron, nobody like them. He has his own category: Best shooter ever. Not one of the best shooters, not Ray Allen, not Reggie Miller, he is the best shooter ever.

Shaq added: “I’m in a category, but there’s another name that you have to mention: Wilt Chamberlain and Shaquille O’Neal, the most dominant ever. I’m fine with that. But in his category, he’s by himself. Greatest player ever, 10 people in that category.

The NBA legend elaborated, “So, the fact that he has his own category and nobody’s even close, and nobody’s even coming close, that should tell you a lot. Then if you look at him, he still looks like a little kid. That’s what amazes me the most — Jordan was big, Kobe was big, Bron is big.

If you saw Steph in the grocery store and you didn’t know who he was, you’d just think he was a regular guy food shopping. And so the fact that he plays and dominates all those big guys, I’m amazed by that, he can just get his shot off anytime. I love that, I’m jealous of that, I wish I could shoot like that.
